Abstract : In this report the findings of research into model abstraction techniques is documented. Model abstraction is a way of simplifying an underlying conceptual model on which a simulation is based while maintaining the validity of the simulation results with respect to the question being addressed by the simulation. Manipulation of models using abstractions is an important part of the model development process.
